FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WALLA WALLA, WASH. -- AMI Advertising Agency (amiadagency.com) was honored Nov. 1 with five MarCom Awards (marcomawards.com) in the International Competition for Marketing & Communication Professionals for digital advertising, graphic design of an annual report and a TV commercial.
The MarCom Awards are held annually by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals and evaluate entries by individuals and companies that enter concepts, writing and design of print, visual, audio and web marketing materials. Winners are chosen from about 6,500 entries each year, according to the contest’s website.
A Platinum Award is recognition of the highest level of creative excellence. Just 19 percent of entries were awarded the Platinum Award this year.
AMI took home three platinum awards for a business-to-consumer website in the digital category for Castillo de Feliciana Vineyard & Winery (castillodefeliciana.com), a TV commercial for Tri-Cities Community Health (mytcch.org) and a printed, 24-page annual report for Yellowhawk Tribal Health Center (yellowhawk.org) in the graphic design category.
AMI took home two Gold Awards for a professional service website for Dura-Shine Clean (dura-shineclean.com) and a business-to-business website for Dayton Chamber of Commerce (historicdayton.com), a tourism organization.
This was the first year AMI Advertising Agency submitted entries in the contest, but the agency already has some awards on its shelf. It received two GOLD ADDY Awards and a Best In Show Award from the American Advertising Federation last March.

We have great clients who trust AMI Advertising Agency with their businesses. They deserve a congratulations and a thank you.

Judges of this contest are industry professionals looking for companies and individuals whose talent exceeds a high standard of merit and whose work serves as a benchmark for the industry.
